Brooke Goldfinch is a young Australian Writer/Director who is a student in New York University’s Graduate Film program, which is part of the Tisch School of the Arts in Manhattan. Her professors have included Director Spike Lee, Oscar nominated Actor James Franco, Director Todd Solondz and Oscar winning actress Lee Grant amongst many other wonderful teachers. She is immensely thankful for the scholarships she has received both from the Tisch School and the Thyne Reid Foundation, without which she would not be able to complete her studies. She was recently awarded the Sandra Ifraimova Production Award for her thesis project, which she hopes to complete in 2013. This year, her short film ‘Pen Pal’ was selected for the 66th International Edinburgh Film Festival and her film ‘Two Ladies and a Gentleman’ screened at The Sarasota Film Festival. At home in Sydney, she won a number of accolades for her short narrative films, including the Art of Documentary Prize, the ABC Stateline award, and the New South Wales U-Film competition. In 2008, she was awarded a coveted Young Filmmakers Fund grant from the New South Wales Film and Television Office for her short film, ‘The Tale of Moon Man’. Before coming to America she worked as a news reporter for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where she covered local events and chased stories about crime and politics.
